First Texas Lottery Jackpot Winner Of 2020 Pockets More Than $13M

LAREDO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Someone hoping for some good luck to start the new year, found it at a convenience store in Laredo.

They bought a Quick Pick lottery ticket and it paid off big-time: $17,500,000.

The cash value option was selected at the time of purchase and the owner of the ticket will receive $13,349,448.78.

The jackpot-winning ticket for the Lotto Texas drawing held on January 15 was purchased at a Stripes Store in the South Texas city.

The winning ticket matched all six of the numbers drawn (16-34-38-40-49-54).

The prize has not yet been claimed. The winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim the prize.

“We look forward to meeting our first Lotto Texas jackpot winner of the new year,” said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery. “If you have the winning ticket, we encourage you to sign the ticket, put it in a safe place, seek financial and legal advice, and call the Texas Lottery before coming to Austin to claim the prize.”

The winning Lotto Texas jackpot started as an advertised $5 million prize for the drawing on Sept. 28, 2019.

The jackpot-winning ticket for the Lotto Texas drawing held on January 15 was purchased at a Stripes Store in the South Texas city of Laredo.

Playing the Lottery is
Not Worth Dying Over
Italy, Spain & China suspended
lottery sales in an attempt to
protect their citizens. Obviously,
the US doesn’t care because
they are continuing to lure millions
of players from their homes
each day for the sole purpose
of purchasing lottery tickets
– a non- essential product.
What a confusing message
officials have sent . They say,
” stay at home and only leave
to purchase “essential” items –
if your caught going out
you could be fined ” as they
continue to allow the sale of
lottery products. A must read.
